This is a unique cable-driven water skiing park that my son tried twice during our recent vacation. It's mostly used by locals, but is open to anyone and they treated us fine, so I'd like to review it. It's a good spot for active teens and older kids who want to do things rather than sightsee.

We went twice, kids had a ball but beware if you are booking for an hour only sometimes the queues can get quite large and the wait time means not many turns at it. The first time we went later in the day for an hour and the queues got extremely large. We did approach the staff about it but... More

Awesome place, no need for a boat to have hours of fun on a wakeboard. I have been here quite a few times and always spend the extra to get a pro board, there is jumps and slides you can attempt which ads to the awesome factor of this wake park. The park is licensed and you can wash down... More

Get pulled along by a cable system riding a wake board. It's great fun and quite challenging so the teenagers will not get bored with this one. May be best to go earlier or later like 3 pm so no need to wait for your go. Catch trans link bus 123 from Cairns and get off at sky rail base... More

Our tour guide suggested cable ski for a day activity and we are glad she did!! The staff are so nice and helpful. And they must be trained to not laugh out loud each time you face plant the water!! But with their patience & my perseverance I stood up all the way to the 1st corner! Unable to move... More

Good park although it was very hot, with limited shade cover, great range of kickers. Good staff, be sure to be sun smart because it's easy to get fried here !!!

We took part in the sky rail and saw the aqua park from above. After a disappointing and expensive trip on the sky rail at to Kuranda we decided to try the rails at the aqua park. Staff were friendly, park wasn't very busy and had a great time.

I've been to numerous cables around the world and worked at one of the best in Europe, this is definitely up there with the better cables and is one of the best I've seen in terms of overall layout and facilities. Staff were all very friendly and patient with the beginners, but during busy times on the Sunday operators could... More
